The grandkids had a blast, they had so much fun with everything you have there. That they where crying cause they did not want to leave. There is plenty of activities for everyone

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great. We try and have whole family fun in a clean safe play place and we're glad you all had a good time! Come again soon!

Had a great time aside from my husbands cell phone being stolen from the men's bathroom.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry about the the phone, but glad you enjoyed the time here at our park. Thanks.

The campground was very nice. It offered many activities. We will never rent a tipi again. We had the worst night ever.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you enjoyed the campground. Sorry you weren't fond of the tipi. Our new lodges have all the critter comforts which might work a little better. Thanks.

The play area for children is great. The camping area was a little tight and close. Restrooms were very clean that was a plus.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you had a fun time and that all was to your liking. Visit again soon. Thanks for your business.

It was absolutely wonderful and the weather was great. The workers were friendly and helpful. We will return again next year. We always enjoy our trip to Hayward KOA and I don't think we ever really have a problem except in getting a handicap cabin for my mother who is in a wheelchair. We stayed in a Teepee for the first time and that was nice. Hope to get cabins for next year keeping our fingers.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great! We're glad you had a good time and we'll be glad to assist you with that cabin reservation! Glad you enjoyed the tipi...so many of our guests have never had the opportunity to stay in one and most really enjoy the experience. Thanks.

Just mom and dad get away weekend, so we didn't utilize all there was to do. Will bring kids back next time. Very nice bathrooms and like the shaded area in pines. Will be back!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great. We look forward to your return. Each weekend throughout the season has a different theme...Chocolate weekend is very popular! Come again soon. We appreciate your business.

Mr Security felt it was necessary to harass us by saying we were 'extremely loud' and would call the sheriff. We were not loud, nor did they have any complaints about our group. It's just their policy to be rude and not want anyone to be out around the campfire after 11:00 pm as their way to enforce quiet time. We will not be going back to Hayward KOA. See the same comments from other reviews.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry....our policy is for a family friendly, kid friendly, safe, clean, fun packed campground that becomes quiet at night, for the enjoyment of all our guests. Thank you.

Can't believe you charge for kids! Bad enough you charge for everything else while you're there. KOAs are suppose to be family oriented and I have to pay extra for my kids...hmm. Something doesn't sound right. Probably why I quit camping at KOAs.

We had to pay for everything we did, would be nice to have a "all inclusive" option where we paid for everything.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you. We have so many guests who only want to camp... no amenities... that we have found a "One Price" doesn't work well.
Jul 21, 2014
Not BIG RIG friendly at all, very tight. Did not have a good experience getting in and out! All though great for kids, lot's to do.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks. This is certainly a kid friendly park. We try to create fun for the whole family and we're glad you had a good time.

As always, Hayward KOA is an excellent place to stay! All the staff is so friendly and helpful! Thank you!

Very good. We are our own critics and we're glad all was good for your stay with us. Thanks.

I will NEVER stay here again. We were harassed all weekend long by Mr. Flashlight for talking at our campsite after 11:00. There was no music and no one was yelling but "Daryl" insisted we were being way too loud and he was going to call the cops. When the owner came over he was very rude to our group (20 families) and stated our money didn't mean anything to him or his business.

We had a great stay at the KOA. The weather was a bit cold at night this year, but with plenty of firewood and warm friendships we once again came away with some memories.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're glad you chose the Hayward KOA to play a part in the creation of the memories. We appreciate your staying with us. Thank you

This was our 4th year of family camping at the Hayward KOA We have always rented KL3 which sleeps 8. We love the location space, patio and room for all our bikes and toys. This year however, we were disappointed in the cleanlness of the cabin. Soiled carpet in the loft, moldy screens, dirty carpet to the loft,patio door does not lock. Needless to say, we rebooked for 2015 hoping for some changes.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the info....we'll look forward to your return and believe me....we will look into the points you mentioned. We pride ourselves on every point being top shelf. Thanks for your continued support.

Wonderful facility - very family friendly. Our kids did not want to leave.

Well hurry back! We'll be glad to see you return. Thanks

Please put a sign that states, no alcoholic beverages at waterslide." I had a beer in my hand and it WAS the only beer I drank that day, they wouldn't let me on the waterslide because of it. I was not under the influence of alcohol. Like the slide rules stated. There clearly IS a difference. The girl was quite rude about it too. Otherwise our stay was great!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your comments.

A great place for those with kids and that is why we chose this KOA as we were taking the grandkids on a little camping trip. If it is just us however we would not be inclined to use it again as the campsites are very close to each other!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're glad you had a nice trip. We hope your grand kids had a ball! We wish for great memories to be made here at our park. Thank you.
Jul 19, 2014
We'll run and clean. Can get very noisy at times, especially over a weekend. Nice having all the activities and pool if you wish to partake. Thank you .

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you. We work hard so you have a great time!

We love coming to Hayward KOA. The facilities are always clean, everyone is friendly and the whole campground has an overwhelming feel of family. My kids love all the activities your campground has available. We had a wonderful time like always.

Thanks for your business. We appreciate your returning to our park and we're glad you found everything to your liking!

Always nice. Friendly staff. Would be nice to get a discount for older clients who don,t use all the facilities offered. Maybe in the 40 dollar range? Kinda high when you look for over sites available in the area for 3-4dayextended weekends. Everyone very friendly however!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Your comments are thoughtful and we appreciate your input.

Too many extra charges for activitys.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you. Most of the themed activities and crafts have no cost each weekend throughout the season and we have been able to lower the cost of the mini golf. Check out our website for a list of scheduled events. We pay attention and appreciate your comments.

Staff is not knowledgeable about the camping accommodations. 3 different occasions I called for verification of where I was staying I asked questions and the answers were incorrect. (As I found out when we got to the cabin we were assigned to) Not the one that I was lead to believe I was getting. After talking to the owner I felt my concerns truly went unheard. I would have packed differently

I have been goint to Hayward KOA for years now. We got there and started our fire. A very rude staff member told us, "I'll have the sheriff haul you to jail." We were not being disrespectful. 4 adults in our 50's were sitting by our fire talking and relaxing. Other KOA staff members covertly told us they have very little respect for this guy as well, but nothing is ever done. PLEASE LOOK INTO THIS

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you. We'll look into this situation. Our security personnel are trained to be respectful but firm in our policies and to use the "do unto others" way of approaching our guest.
Jul 15, 2014
Took my great nieces for the fist time! They loved it! We'll be back!!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great. We'll look for your return. Don't forget to check our website for all weekend themed activity schedules. Thank you.
Jul 15, 2014
Great place to camp! So clean! Staff are friendly and there's lots of fun things to do. Only negative was the price. A tent site with no hookups cost about the same as a decent hotel room.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your thoughts. We appreciate when our guest lets us know what they're thinking.
Jul 15, 2014
Good time. Fun clean location. I was surprised that the slide, mini golf and jumping pillow were all extra costs along with fire wood and a few other things.

Enforce 5 mph rule for your staff in the golf carts. It was scary with little kids around. I expect they have speed limiting devices on the carts that could be set lower. The canoe trip from Seeley was fun but if the water was any lower there would be a lot of dragging the bottom.
